ALLEGAN, Mich. (WOOD) - An Allegan County 18-year-old has been sentenced for crimes committed while she was on the run from the law with two men who had escaped a northern Michigan correctional facility.
Brittany Rector was sentenced to 1 year in the Allegan County jail with credit for 185 days served.
As part of a plea agreement, Rector pleaded guilty in April to breaking and entering, unlawful driving away of an automobile and possession of methamphetamine.
At age 17, Rector was with Kenneth Grauman II, Gregory Bradshaw and Lauralee Graumen as they fled from Michigan to Colorado over a 10-day period.
On Sept. 29, 2012, Bradshaw and Kenneth Grauman escaped from the Lake County Residential ReEntry Facility in Baldwin. They made their way to Allegan County, where they picked up Lauralee Grauman and Rector. On Oct. 11, all four were caught in Canon City, Colorado after they checked into a motel.
Kenneth Grauman and Bradshaw have been sentenced to 18 years in a Colorado prison for second-degree burglary.
A former teacher accused of having inappropriate contact with a student entered a plea Monday.
